hi everyone
i was wondering what would be a good everyday carry bag to use when i go to SEA. i want something i can wear on my front, or move slightly towards front to avoid people snatching! the only valuable item i will keep in it is my camera
thanks!:)

Does it need to be that big? How about a classic 'bum bag', or as it's called in America, a 'fanny pack'..

Everyone always has backpacks, but I am thinking of taking a satchel bag this time. Can adjust the strap so you can have it tight, can have it across your body, I usually have mine to the front. The one I have has a zip across the top as well as a fastening flap, so would be pretty impossible to get into...

I also find the satchel / messenger type bags good for travelling as you can wear them across the body and have the bag in front when you need to. They're a handy hands free option too when you're sight seeing / walking.

The only suggestion is to get one that's not too big. I found with a larger one that I ended up with shoulder and neck pain.

A fanny pack or a messenger bag are the only things i can think of that fit what you want.
